Web Services

The Web Services protocol is a modern and safe data communications solution for connections between the financial administration of a company and the systems of a bank.

Web Services protocol PKI certificate How to start using the services Service descriptions Web Services protocol

The Web Services protocol is intended for the transmission of payment files between your company and the bank.
The protocol is a connection type transmitting messages/files, and in this respect it deviates from corporate netbank, which is interactive.

Your benefits:

  • The connection can be automated and timed.
  • The data communications connection is always encrypted, so you do not need a separate VPN connection.
PKI certificate

PKI certificate

The Web Services connection identifies customers with a PKI certificate (Nordea eID), which companies can retrieve from the bank with their bank connection software. The software will send a request for a certificate, to which it attaches the name, user ID and country code of the customer stated in the agreement. The request is secured with an activation code received via an SMS message delivered to the mobile phone number of the administrator specified in the agreement. 

If your bank connection software does not have a feature for downloading the certificate, you can also download the Nordea Security Client (NSC) by choose the Certificate Download; Download of Nordea Security Client. Once downloaded you can start the client and fill in and send a certificate request with the above-mentioned data. When you receive the certificate, you have to give a password to it to protect it if you want to export it directly for the use of the bank connection software, otherwise it will be stored locally on the windows certificate store.

A retrieved certificate is valid for two years. It is your company's responsibility to renew it before it expires. Some bank connection software will notify the user of the certificate's expiry in advance, enabling users to renew their certificate without an interruption to the service. Depending on the software, the renewal may be done fully automatically or you can download a new certificate as described above. You can order a new activation code at a branch or from Nordea's E-support for Corporate Customers, tel. 0200 67230 (local network charge/mobile call charge), provided that the administrator's mobile phone number is saved in the bank's agreement register. An activation code is valid for 7 days.

How to start using the services

How to start using the services

Your company must make a written agreement on the use of the Web Services protocol at a Nordea branch. In addition, you need bank connection software that supports the Web Services protocol. In Finland the use of the protocol so far requires local agreements.

Section 4 in the Web Services service description contains information on the file types available for uploading and downloading.
The agreements and terms of payment services remain as is; only the data communications and data security protocols change.

The PKI certificate is used for identifying a customer in the Web Services protocol.  For more information, see tab PKI certificate..
